Go Outdoors With Bass Pro Shops

Bass Pro Shops has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I remember looking through their catalog with my dad, eager to find the latest and greatest fishing products. When the store opened in Georgia, I had to check it out. I went with my family and I remember it being a great adventure! I will never forget walking through the front door and being overwhelmed by it's greatness. Years later, I can still spend all day in one of their stores and never want to leave! While I don't get out and enjoy the great outdoors as much as I used to, I always turn to my trusted source when I need outdoor products or gear. Bass Pro stands behind their products and I always feel confident with my purchases. Recently, we were outfitted with a great 3 person tent, 2 sleeping bags, and a daypack for camp! My husband and Logan were the lucky ones to review these great products. I opened the daypack and sleeping bags when they arrived and I must say, I LOVE the colors! The materials used seemed to be very durable and very lightweight. The compact Ascend™ 20ยบ Mummy Sleeping Bag features double-layer quilted construction with hollow fiber insulation, 210T nylon diamond ripstop shell, 210T poly-taffeta lining, fully adjustable contoured hood, trapezoidal footbox, and a 3" draft tube along the zipper’s full length. It includes compression stuff sack for easy transport! My husband loved this bag, but it did get a little hot. I think it would be ideal for spring, fall, and our mild winters. Logan had no problems and he stayed bundled up all through the night! The Ascend™ Hiker 3 Tent is great when you want a quality tent at a great price. It's a three person tent and it's packed with features! The Ascend 3 grants easy access thanks to its dual doors and vestibules on the front and back of the tent. It's made from durable 190T polyester taffeta and it's walls feature a 600mm polyurethane coating, while the tent's 190T polyester taffeta full rainfly features a 1500mm coating for waterproof protection! The floor is made of 190T polyester taffeta with an 1800mm coating. It is outfitted with large mesh panels and two rainfly windows (with privacy curtains) for air flow. Set up is a breeze thanks to lightweight and sturdy fiberglass poles and reflective guyout cords. The tent measures 8'4'' x 5'8'' with a center height of 4'3''. It even comes with a removable gear loft! We also received an Ascend™ Aspen 3000 40L Daypack. This 3000 cubic inch pack is great for overnight treks or full day adventures. It's a strong pack featuring a PE board and aluminum stay bar for back panel support. It's padded back panel with airmesh pods make it comfortable to carry. The contoured and padded shoulder straps with sternum strap certainly help! It features dual panel-loading main compartments, internal zip-out mesh compartment dividers, internal compression flaps and mesh pockets for smaller gear.  Dual side compression straps and bottom compression straps lock your load in place and a zippered front pocket with organizer  keeps everything handy and secure. The pack also features dual side water bottle pockets, daisy chain webbing, ice ax loop, and hydration compatibility! This pack is definitely ideal for our family. It looks great too! Bass Pro Shops has all you need to Go Outdoors!
